Bring the Freaking Ever-Loving LIGHT

There are a LOT of psychics chiming in on the election right now. On both sides. This makes me hesitant to chime in, because I take my job seriously – but I also take great care to be mindful of exactly *when* a medium’s input is appropriate.

Is it appropriate for a religious leader to say “god hates ___” or “god wants ____” or “god has spoken to me, and he says _____”?

Of course, the fact is, people DO say these things, and many millions of other people listen, base their lives upon the assumption that these statements are correct, and that their correctness transcends any mortal, earthly (temporary) suffering.

We see this mentality play out in smaller, isolated groups – cults. Hundreds or thousands of people accepting the absolute word or rule of a spiritual leader. *Be careful where you put your faith.*

This is why I’ve always asked you to read my blog and listen to my podcast with an open mind and heart, but with your brain engaged too. These are IDEAS. No medium and no spiritual leader anywhere can lay claim to the whole truth according to God. As humans we crave that truth, so I can understand how it’s just so tempting to put your trust and faith in an individual, and trust completely the things they say.

Now, observe, carefully and quietly, what you’re saying to yourself. Are you looking for “it was meant to be”? Why? And if you knew with certainty this was NOT meant to be, how would you behave differently? Why do you NOT want to do that now?

As a medium, I know where my information comes from – how delicate the line of communication, how easily influenced it is. Understand that mediums are humans, and we’re influenced by our own life experience. Humans are imperfect. When a medium accepts the trust of another person you have to treat that gift with the deepest respect and care.

Just because I am good at channeling your loved ones and pets doesn’t mean I’m infallible. NO MEDIUM IS CORRECT 100% OF THE TIME. Not even if they predicted the results of this election correctly. Not even if they pulled incredible confirmation from thin air during a session. You put your trust in a medium, but never forget that we’re just doing the best we can. NO ONE is granted unfiltered, absolute access to the unknowable. Not ministers or priests, not monks, not mediums. We have a lot to offer, yes. But I have *always* been very clear with my clients and you, my dear friends and readers, that you have to keep your brain engaged. Take what makes sense to you, but don’t take it as certainty. Take is as a useful idea, and examine those ideas regularly.

If you’re still reading, please keep all this in mind. And thank you for reading! I’m so glad you’re here.

Now is not the time to look to mediums for answers, now is the time to look to your own community, and make your own plan of action. My greatest fear as a medium is seeing other new age people (mostly white people) settle into complacency with a “God’s got this” mentality.

You know who can’t afford to say that? Minorities. Consider for a moment how abusive it is to say to a minority, and remember I’m one of them, “Oh, this is all meant to be.” If your friends and family experience violence, that’s meant to be.

No it isn’t. We live in a volatile environment and we have to engage in it, vigorously!

I very strongly believe in universal truths. You know, those messages which pop up consistently all over the world, even in isolated populations. We come up with the same answers to the same basic questions:

Where do we go when we die? On. We go on. We do not disappear.

Who is in charge of all of this? Well, we are, to a large extent. To say that god has a plan and this is the rolling out of that plan is to take it a step too far, in my humble opinion. Whatever comforting words that are passing around about “This is all for the best” you’ll notice are the sentiments of people who don’t have a lot to lose in the face of all this.

My dear friends, I’m not going to mince words about this. Speaking not as a psychic, but as a human with a logical brain who has read some history books, who has descended from Germans who survived living in Berlin during Nazi rule, now is not the time for words of comfort. It is not the time to see how things go, and maybe it won’t be that bad.

How bad does it have to get? And if it gets that bad, will you be able to stop it then?

We need to be afraid here. Not a paralyzing, helpless fear – we need that fear to motivate us to do what we have not been doing to prevent a man who has not only a decades-long well-documented history of racism, misogyny, and elitism, but someone who CAMPAIGNED ON that very hate and fear of the “Others”. That’s called Xenophobia. We’ve seen this before. We know where this can go, how this can end.

Trump and Pence have not even attempted to hide who they are. They *campaigned* on it. AND WON.

Human suffering matters. We are obliged, as loving beings, to work to ease that suffering. That’s what a “lightworker” is supposed to do. Now is the time to buckle down and BRING THE FREAKING LIGHT.

It is a FACT that hate crimes have taken a big jump this week. The culmination of Trump’s divisive campaign rhetoric has been this big blank permission slip. “We took our country back.” From who? And what are you going to do with “them” now?

On November 9th, I watched through my white person shock and horror the results of the American election. I say “white person shock” because it was my privilege to be so blind to real hatred in the US. It’s made me take a new look for the hidden hatred around me. And now I have to reconcile myself to the little indications I’ve witnessed of this very hatred in my own communities. People don’t think their relative who made that unsavory comment that one time are THAT bad. But that’s a vote for Trump, or for your country’s version of Trump. We Canadians need to be mindful of our own politicians parroting Trump’s sentiment.

I grieve with you, and with the world. Most of all, I grieve the willful ignorance of the person who saw Trump as the better candidate. I grieve their willingness to look past the very things he said at his own rallies, and throughout his life. Their naïve belief that despite what he *says he intends to do* it will work out for the best. I grieve what that person’s concept of “the best” is.

I grieve their station of privilege too. They could afford to take that risk.

On a specifically personal note, did you know that Mark Pence, Trump’s second in command, is an anti-gay politician? Did you know that he wants to de-fund AIDS/HIV treatment and divert that funding to conversion therapy? Therapy that has been scientifically proven to be ineffective? Speaking just as a queer person, just on this one issue – that’s terrifying.

A decade or so ago, queer folks and their families started to see full page ads for conversion therapy. It *is* a ridiculous idea, and we didn’t really take it seriously. We didn’t understand the threat of those ads. The real purpose of those ads was not to lure actual queer folks into conversation therapy – the real message was never directed at us. It was shot right over our heads, into the laps of those who didn’t understand us. Those ads told the ignorant people that being gay is a choice.

It was diabolical and a brilliant tactic, when you look back on it.

I see that very tactic at play right now. A country’s problems being blamed on immigrants, the “immoral” minorities. This tactic is frighteningly compelling. It works.

You know, after Hitler came to power, life improved for the average German. Germans who weren’t ethnic, religious, or sexual minorities, Germans who weren’t disabled or mentally ill. Germans who weren’t vulnerable. Life improved for the privileged.

At what cost?

When I posted on November 9th, “Oh USA, what have you done?” I got a response. “We took our country back.”

That chills me to the very bone.

Took your country back. From who?

From the others. The immigrants. The gays. The non-whites. (As though all us white folks aren’t immigrants too.) That’s white supremacy in action, and it’s freaking ugly. White supremacy isn’t just about skin colour – it’s about a type of person that has declared themselves to be superior, and has decided to take everything for themselves.

We’ve seen this before. We see this in action all over the world, right now.

No, now is not the time for comforting words from Spirit. But I have to say that Bob Marley has been on my mind a lot lately. Rather than channel him again, I ask that we go back and read his words. https://psychicintraining.com/?s=bob+marley Even now I post this hesitantly. I feel like my role is to be supportive of my minority friends, especially the American ones. Although I’m a minority myself, I walk through this world with great privilege, right now, in this body, in this life. I’m not an oppressed minority, where I live. I’m so lucky, and maybe you’re lucky too. If count yourself lucky, you’re in a position of strength. How are we going to use that strength?

I don’t want to give people an excuse to feel better and become complacent. We need to be uncomfortable and upset right now. That’s a part of life. A part of *why we incarnate in the first place*. We can’t experience anything like this in spirit. We’re not meant to disengage from it, or rise above it on assurances that all will work out as it should.

I can tell you from my experience as a medium – not everything is planned. Accidents happen. Premature deaths happen. Unplanned disease happens. Life is freaking risky, and hazardous. That’s why we have spirit guides! That’s why our guides’ jobs are so hard – and even with our guides, with helpers / angels, we can still die accidentally, our life plans – however detailed or loose they may be – can get derailed.

And if the world is shifting on its spiritual access, if it is meant to be and we’re on a path – well let’s all get to work and push it along this path in the RIGHT DIRECTION, as quickly as possible! Let’s help each other along the way, let’s take care of each other, let’s take advantage of all the incredible wealth that surrounds most of us.

We are in THIS reality. We missed the bus to that parallel reality where Hillary is president. We’re here, this is our reality, we need to own it, and we have to be proactive now, more engaged than ever before.

Have you noticed that nothing is as unifying as a common cause?

We need to bring the freaking ever-loving light!

(See the comments for discussion on how we can bring the freaking light. This is going to roll out for a while.)

  1. Thank you so much for writing this post, Kate. As a black, bisexual, cisgendered female U.S. citizen the election results are horrifying. I’ve been consumed by fear, anger, grief, and disappointment. My worry is that the lives, welfare and civil rights of oppressed groups will be demolished. Hate crimes and harassment have and continue to be perpetrated by some Trump supporters. And who knows where it will go from here. Moreover, I’m still grappling with those who either dismiss or don’t understand these concerns. The number one thing that I can think of everyone needs to stand up for the oppressed through their words and actions. Even it means going out of your comfort zone or being unpopular, you need to do it.

      • Absolutely. Perhaps, it’s out of denial or privilege that some good, well meaning people are oblivious to the fear. However, the fear, pain, and outrage are justified. Which brings to mind a question: How can we continue to hold relationships with those who don’t understand these concerns, while opposing injustice?

      • Yeah. There’s no good in alienating them (some are u reachable, but I think most are in denial).

        I think part of it is repeated presentation of the facts. Most people have to hear something they WANT to know at least three times before they remember.

        Advertising (presumably something people are neutral about) requires dozens of repetitions to get through.

        How many times do you have to present information people DON’T want to hear?

        Repeatedly, patiently, insistently.

  2. I think all politicians are run by The Illuminati anyway. And as I say that I hear “someone” singing “people say I’m crazy” … Ha.

    Here is my thoughts on it eloquently said by someone else……

    “Due to the results of the Presidential election, a new mission has been added to our journey. While many heart-centered beings are engulfed in sadness, despair, frustration, and anger toward Donald Trump and those who supported his campaign, I invite you to consider the newest mission that we, as anchors of a new spiritual paradigm have been given.

    Since Donald Trump is the character that has been propelled to the forefront of our collective consciousness, may we use this as an opportunity to evolve as light workers, star seeds, earth angels, empaths, healers, and spiritual masters alike. May we use any thought, judgment, or discordant feeling toward Donald Trump or his supporters as opportunities to bless his administration and uplift the vibration of his efforts. May we aim our heart-centered consciousness in his direction, so intentionally and passionately that every tendency to hate, disrespect, disempower, and dominate women, ethnic groups, those with special needs, and those who are different from him be transformed into his highest conduct and character from this moment forward.

    If life wishes to put him in the driver’s seat, may our awakened consciousness fuel the vehicle of his administration as a manifestation of unity, peace, love, equality, abundance, and freedom for all. May our united vibrational efforts transform him into the highest potential for the resolution of national issues and international affairs. May his past indiscretions remind us of how much healing his masculine aspect requires in order to integrate the divine feminine and carry out the crucial decisions that our light creates for all. May our prayers and blessings of his Presidential term create jobs for those in need of financial opportunities, food and clothing for those in need, the implementation of key decisions that reduce the crime rate of our beloved planet, reduce pollution and overconsumption, while open conscious lines of communication between leaders in foreign countries and unraveling the deception woven throughout the fabric of politics.

    Despite the way this character acts and appears, may we, the light workers and earth angels of this world, raise the vibration of our efforts, so however Donald Trump has acted in the past can be forgiven, released, and resolved for the benefit of the world we came to transform. From Trump to triumph; may this become a key aspect of our daily mission by blessing his administration, which not only liberates each heart from the plight of personal judgment, but provides us another opportunity to prove how powerful we are when aiming our awareness in a conscious and collective direction.

    An elected official is not the hope we have been waiting for. We are the hope that helps create the change we wish to see. Whether you are inspired to join this aspect of the mission, insist on fighting the things you’re against, or first need to focus on embracing, honoring, and nurturing the unresolved parts of yourself first — you always deserve more love, not less.

    May the soul of Donald Trump and his administration be awakened, healed, and transformed for the well-being of all to unite this world as One. And so it is.” – Matt Kahn

    • OMG did you see that bogus Kurt Cobain quote circulating!?!? I nearly dropped my iPod.

      While I agree with the general idea of Matt’s prayer, and it’s certainly a prayer I’d say, I also want to get EXTREMELY SPECIFIC and deeply grounded in reality.

      It is extremely unlikely that a man who has been behaving one way his whole life is going to change.

      And “life” didn’t put him in the driver’s seat, people did. Voters, and an electoral system put him there, despite everything he’s said and done.

      Yes, I’ll join you in prayer, my dear Noel, you know that! But let’s not idle in prayer for long. And let’s not confuse prayer with concrete action.

      I’m gathering ideas for my personal course of action. Who can I support in my community? Who else can I reach out to?

      I’m even committing to joining my country’s Conservative party – to help dilute the crazy that’s boiling down there.

  3. A few weeks ago I had a nightmare about a situation that has been stressful for a couple of months. It was one of those dreams which seemed so real that I couldn’t distinguish it from my waking life. It was horrible. When I woke up and realized that what I experienced was not my “real” life, I *so* relieved. The results of this election feel like that bad dream but there’s no waking up from this nightmare. This is reality and we’re in for some rocky times. It’s going to take a shitload of yoga and meditation to deal with this one.

    It seems that overnight everyone but white, heterosexual men have been relegated to a group of second class citizens who are now living in fear of losing their rights to get married, getting deported or being put into a register of religious people who will be monitored. This is playing out in real time by racial and religious attacks by so-called disenfranchised and forgotten white men and women. The only positive that I can see in this is that it has really forced us examine who we are, which side we stand on and what actions we will take to right the wrongs. As an American, queer, white woman, I was empathetic with the oppression of non-white people based on my experiences of being queer and growing up in a very conservative Mormon family (and I used to believe that stuff!). I was seriously discriminated against by all members of my family for decades. But I was still white, so it was still easier to get a job, easier to get a home loan, have a higher life expectancy, and I wouldn’t have to worry that I might lose my life if I get stopped by a cop for a broken headlight. And all of the sudden, yesterday, I realized that for the first time ever, in my own west coast, USA bubble of liberal life, anyone who isn’t a straight, white male is considered a second class citizen, that we don’t belong here and we’re in danger either psychologically and/or in a practical everyday sense. No matter what we do. How privileged I was before Tuesday night to have had a solely intellectual understanding of racial oppression. It hit me like a ton of bricks.

    We’re in a holding pattern of fear wondering what we’ll lose first. Right to a safe abortion? Being sicker due to loss of health insurance? The fact that our marriages might be annulled? That’s the most tragic part. His mode of control over the people with fear is the most base and vile way of leading. We have no idea what he’s going to do or what’s going to happen, but we can feel the Kremlinesque overtones of our government (and not to mention Russia’s involvement) as each day passes.

    My gut tells me that he’s scared shitless, is wondering what the hell he got himself into and can’t wait to get out of the job. I think Obama scared the ____ out him when they met on Thursday. You can see it in his body language, his newly somber tone and the look in his eyes.

    I know I’m preaching to the choir. It’s time for us to wipe our tears, rise up and ACT. We thought, “It can’t happen here.” But it’s here now. We have choices and we can derail hate, bigotry, and negativity.

  6. Thanks for this writing Kate. It’s really good to see it this thinking out there in the context of new age beliefs. I also come from German heritage, and I know through those stories how the combination of privilege and fear works to create bystanders who justify their lack of action, and we now know where that can lead. I agree that we all must act, move through our fear in order to support those being attacked, in every way and from every place we occupy.

    • Yes. For my great-grandparents, and my grandparents, by the time the communist party was in power, it was far too late, and everyone had to make difficult choices about survival and sacrifice.

      My father’s family was quite wealthy in Germany, but after the currency crashed, my great grandfather had just pulled cash to purchase property, the money wasn’t worth the paper it was printed on. He literally wallpapered his office in it. My Oma was left to raise her children by picking through scrap heaps for metal.

      Even the privileged have everything to lose, eventually. We just get taken down in order of vulnerability.

      We can’t afford to wait and see, and certainly the people already being harassed, bullied and beaten can’t afford for us to wait either. This has already surpassed the threshold of unacceptability.

      It’s fitting this happened close to Remembrance Day. This is why we were brought up to “Never Forget”.

  7. Great info, Lana. Here is a Wikipedia list of specifically LGBTQ# organizations in the US (broken down by state as well) with external links:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_LGBT_rights_organizations_in_the_United_States

    There are links on the page to international organizations as well. Some of the organizations on the list are defunct, but most of them are active and can use donations and/or volunteer time. I particularly like the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), National LGBTQ Task Force, GLAAD, ACT UP and Queer Nation.

    • So, there are so very many problems with the government Trump is assembling…. Honestly you guys, I am still trying to wake up.

      What problem needs the most support right now? This Muslim registration thing is very scary. Is there a legal fund fighting that?

      Or do you guys have a favourite? I want to make sure it’s a legit organization that has a track record of action.

      And what sort of action? Legal action? Demonstrations?

      Planned parenthood?
